    Great video caveman. I am going to have to get a set of line locks. I just love that you have a semi permanent stake right at the bottom of the kids slide! Ouch

    Interesting way of doing that, Cannibal.

    Have you considered reversing the ZingIt and the shock cord? So that the shock cord goes to the stake while the ZingIt goes up to a LineLoc right at the tarp? It would allow you to adjust in the rain without getting more'n your hands wet. Just a thought...

    Thanks for sharing!

    LOL. I hadn't even thought about that. My youngest is 12 and no one has gone down that slide in years...but I guess if a little one was to visit they could have a bad day.

    FL Rider...I used to do it that way. Not sure why I changed it, but I've never made "adjustments" once I'm settled in anyway. Good suggestion though. Thanks.

    Not a problem.

    Mentioned it because of a storm that caught me in Pine Mountain, GA once; I had my tarp in porch mode and had splashback getting me from underneath at my right shoulder (it was raining hard enough that the torrent coming off of my tarp dug a softball-sized hole in the clay there...). All I had to do was knock my hiking pole down and tighten the tarp. My hands got wet, but the rest of me was dry (well, aside from my shoulder, but that wasn't due to tightening the tarp). Buuut...I was using a much smaller tarp than yours, so YMMV and all that.
